Oui: The Paranoid Critical Revolution ~ Salvador DalÃ
Salvador DalÃâs writings...more
If this book is anything like Salvador DalÃâs "The Secret Life of Salvador Dali" it will be a fascinating read. I wanted to recommend "The Secret Life of Salvador Dali" but couldn't find the cover I liked, so I recommended this one instead. Ok? Ok. Book Description Salvador DalÃâs writings from the period in which he was most closely allied with the Surrealists have never before been translated into English. These short fictions, essays, and poems contain all the egotistic brio one might expect from DalÃ, but they also reveal an earnest and even sentimental artist. They document DalÃâs friendships with fellow Spaniards Luis BuÃ±uel and Federico GarcÃa Lorca, his entry into the world of the Parisian Surrealists, his passion for the emerging arts of photography and cinema, and the development of his "Paranoid-Critical Method," the theoretical basis for DalÃâs work throughout his life. In 1934, DalÃ and AndrÃ© Breton would break forever â "The only difference between me and a Surrealist is that I am a Surrealist," he later said â but in the period 1927-1933, such distinctions were unnecessary.
